NEVC Tallinn Semi-Final

Did it in Warsaw. Been to Prague. Been to Kiev. And Belgrade. Seen some amazing projects. Met some really cool people.

Now… going to Tallinn. Very excited about that :-) My one and only goal for this trip and event is to discover Estonia’s secret of producing the most innovative start-up’s per capita in Europe. Check out the Estonian All-Star line-up below…

On behalf of the Warsaw Stock Exchange and New Europe Events I have a great pleasure to invite entrepreneurs from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and also Belarus and Russia to participate in Tallinn New Europe Venture Contest Semi-Final on February 15th, 2011 in Tallinn, Estonia.

The highlight of the conference will undoubtedly be the Estonian All-Star discussion panel on the topic of ‘Entrepreneurial environment in the Baltics and regional expansion opportunities‘. Exchanging opinions and insights will be:

In case of regional expansion you’ll need a lot of cash and professional advice. If you’re wondering how to raise 2nd and 3rd round of capital you’ll find your answers during this event. Märt Meerits of Aktsiaselts Silvano Fashion Group will present case study of listing on the WSE from the Estonian issuer perspective. Legal challenges preceding listing on the capital market will be the topic of Lawin presentation while Tomasz Ciborowski of Bank Zachodni WBK will talk about the IPO preparation process.

If you only need a couple of mil and not tens of millions you should attend the presentation on ‘IPO advisers and their role’ by Jerzy Bednarek representing the DSBJ Group, Warsaw Stock Exchange NewConnect Market Authorised Adviser.

The event will provide its participants with know-how regarding capital sources for both big and medium companies. And… it will be extremely fun to be a part of.

It’s going to be the last out of 5 semi-finals of the contest covering 12 CEE countries, consisting of 6 events and discovering (potentially) top 12 CEE start-ups. The Great Finale in Warsaw will happen on March 8th, 2012.

Contest’s finalists will receive advice (legal, business, EU funding, marketing) preparing them for the Finals. Best prepared projects chosen in the Finals may have a chance to go public on WSE’s NewConnect unregulated market and/or raise VC funding.
